"I am not afraid of retaliation. I have no kids, no wife, no car, no mortgage. It surely is a bit dramatic but I'd rather die on my feet, than live on my knees" - translation from http://www.reddit.com/r/pics/comments/2rmgra/these_two_carto...
Maybe Zappata went to school and studied the story of Athen?
"Finally, for the Homeric hero, aretê consisted of a set of qualities clustered around the readiness to fight a beautiful war and die a beautiful death."
"preferring to die in their own land rather than live to dwell in that of others"
Living on your knees, conformity
Or dying on your feet for honesty
